Clarkdale, Arizona

Clarkdale, just two miles northwest of Cottonwood, began as a smelter town. Many of the old houses and building still stand. When the smelter closed down in 1952, many residents lost their jobs. The Phoenix Cement Company, which provided the cement for the Glen Canyon Dam at the Colorado River, moved in its place.
